I find it very difficult to not start boots.

Yeah, I still take boots+pots at the start of like, 90% of games where I don't jungle or support. The only times I don't is when It's a heavy AD lane (cloth/pots) or I'm just plain hardcountered (flask/pots)

I've been doing longsword+pots on most carries. I've been starting boots on Trist lately though. I want my IE as fast as possible.

you aren't building vamp scepter before finishing ie? o_o

i hope you are playing with a sustain support every game with a team that can prevent you from taking damage, ever

Some mids I go flask pots. Some tops I go elixir ward pots or cloth pots.

If I don't really think I need one of those options though for the extra sustain, then i always default to boots pots.

I never do boots anymore with exception to certain bot lane matchups as ADC. Top it's pretty much always a combo of red elixir, ward, pots/flask. Mid is flask+pots or pots+wards or red elixir + pots + wards if I'm against a melee mid (free AA harass early levels can really add up).

I love starting Red pot + 4 pots + Ward or Red pot + 6 pots if I need sustain.

Red pot pretty much makes the other person unable to 1v1 you if they don't have one themselves.

What so special about red pot? If person decides to play safe you are set back 250ish gold?
I feel pots are waste, you get no benefit from them, delay your other stuff too much.
I see why ward can and is useful.

Ah, how the game changes.
ADC, everyone goes longsword 2 pots except me nowadays.

Man, I love having early boots be a lot weaker. There's more variety to starts now, and I don't feel quite so bad for putting my level two boots off.

When people shake these weird habits of ALWAYS starting something and ALWAYS building something thats when you'll become a much better player.

Elixer+4 pots (?)+Ward
Faerie Charm+6 Pots+Ward (My go-to on those that build tear)
